Comment of the Week
Deep (and true, IMHO) thought from Garrison Keillor two weeks ago: "Pumpkin pie is the essence of mediocrity. The very best pumpkin pie you ever tasted is practically indistinguishable from the very worst pumpkin pie you ever tasted."Posted by: Bob | November 19, 2009 5:08 PM
I happen to like pumpkin pie, but when I eat it I'm always conscious of the fact that I'm enjoying nostalgia, not food I love. Can you really say you've ever had a traditional pumpkin pie that knocked your socks off?
(I solve the problem by making a chiffon pumpkin pie with a gingersnap crust.)
